October 5th, 2020

The Teenage Brain in the Age of Digital Distraction

Speaker: Adrienne Principe

Time: 10am-12pm

Description: This webinar will review current research regarding the teenage brain. We will look at how and why the teenage brain is impacted by digital media and consequently, how to reach teenagers in the learning environment. Understanding teenage brain development will provide educators with the knowledge necessary to communicate that information to students and help them better understand how they can balance digital media to achieve digital wellness and positive learning outcomes.
